It has been one and a half year since the release of Skyrim, and though there will still be minor updates coming down the road, Bethesda Game Studios have decided that it is time to move on with the main bulk of the team. And for those wondering, in a tweet, Pete Hines confirmed that there will not be any more DLCs
for Skyrim at all. We can practically say that Fallout 4 was announced today, unless they have changed their release strategy, and TES VI is in the making (doubtful).
Thank you, Bethesda, for a wonderful game!
Skyrim has been a labor of love for us since we started designing it in 2006. We never imagined it would become the phenomenon it has. And that is because of you, the fans. It was all of you who made it a success. We can’t thank you enough for embracing the game, spreading the word, and making it your own.
For the last year and a half we’ve been working on new content for Skyrim; from the game updates, Creation Kit, Steam Workshop, Kinect support, to DLCs. Parts of our team have also been in pre-production on our next major project, and that game is at the point where it requires the studio’s full attention to make it our biggest and best work yet.
Even though we’re moving on, we’ll still have minor updates to Skyrim as needed. We’ve invested so much of ourselves into Skyrim and will never truly say goodbye to it.
We loved hearing your stories, your in-game triumphs, and your suggestions. One thing stuck out to us through those emails, letters, and postings. And that is – video games matter. They’re as important to you as they are to us. It’s not just about entertainment, it’s about your time. And you chose to spend it with our game.
Thank you again for all your support. We hope you stay engaged in the gaming community here and elsewhere. Keep spreading the word. Games are the world’s best entertainment because they can do what other forms cannot – fill you with the wonder of exploration and the pride of accomplishment. We look forward to sharing our next adventure with you.
Until next time,
Bethesda Game Studios
UPDATE: I see a lot of people asking about the "Redguard DLC". It was a rumor, and a false one at that. This has been confirmed by Pete Hines
already. Yes, they did trademark Redguard back in 2012, but that was to renew it to protect it
